Age: 28 - B/T: R/R

Hard-throwing righty now fully recovered from 2009 Tommy John rightfully makes major league team now but Drew Storen’s return may force the Nationals to exercise his minor league option due to roster crunch.

32 Tom Gorzelanny

Age: 29 - B/T: L/L

Former starter will serve as a long man but could likely get regular use even if not in long-relief situations.

48 Ross Detwiler

Age: 26 - B/T: R/L

A future starter, Detwiler will serve as a long reliever but will be kept mostly on a starter’s schedule. Most likely candidate to start in case of emergency and whenever another starter is needed.
